Sweet & Spicy Citrus Tilapia

This was a super easy marinade that you could use on any type of fish or even grilled chicken.  It would be great all through the summer.  It came together really quickly as the marinade only took 15 minutes and then it was all baked together in the oven.  I served it over rice, along side of some veggies.
